Over the past year, we gathered all available bus service data and analyzed demographics for the Bronx, to publish our Existing Conditions Report and develop the Draft Plan. We engaged extensively with elected officials, community boards, and communities through the borough. With this analysis and your feedback, we've developed the Final Plan to redesign the Bronx Bus Network.

The redesigned network establishes a strong foundation on which we can continue to build a successful high-frequency network that serves the largest number of riders at the times when they need service the most.

This plan also demonstrates our new approach to providing bus service—one that dynamically responds and adapts to the needs and travel patterns of customers and reallocates available resources where they will have the greatest impact.

Therefore, our work on the Bronx Bus Network will not end with the release of this report or the implementation of the proposed changes, but will continue as we refine service based on ridership and performance, and respond to feedback we receive from customers.

Plan Your Trip in the New Network

Use this tool to get a hypothetical preview of Bronx bus service in the proposed network. This future trip planning tool includes all the proposed stop changes, routing changes, and new schedules proposed in our Final Plan. It covers one of week of service, from October 4, 2020, to October 10, 2020, so that you can test out both weekday and weekend trips.

A few things to keep in mind:

  • This planning tool represents what Bronx bus service would be like in the future and is not meant to be used as a trip planner for the current bus network.
  • Routes that travel to boroughs that have not been redesigned yet will use existing stops, routes, and schedules for the portion of the route in the non-redesigned borough. For example, the portion of the Q50 LTD that runs in the Bronx will use the new stop lists, routes, and schedules. The portion of the Q50 LTD that runs in Queens will use existing data from the current Queens Bus Network.
  • As additional borough bus networks are redesigned and stop lists, routes, and schedules are reconfigured, we will add them to this planning tool.

Share Your Thoughts

We'll be out and about in the Bronx to share our Final Plan and hear what you think. We're in the process of finalizing an event schedule, and will update this section of the page as soon as its ready. We hope to see you at one of these events.
